Songs for learning parts of the body

Here's a song about every preschooler knows: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (Cabeza, hombros, rodillas y pies):

Cabeza, hombros, rodillas y pies*
rodillas y pies
Cabeza, hombros, rodillas y pies
rodillas y pies
Ojos, orejas, boca y nariz
Cabeza, hombros, rodillas y pies
rodillas y pies

I would recommend introducing the vocabulary first:

Cabeza - head
Hombros - shoulders
Rodillas - knees
*Pies - *Pies means feet and dedos de pies is toes, it's shortened to pies to fit the rhythm of the song.
Ojos - eyes
Orejas - ears
Boca - mouth
Nariz - nose


Another good song is the Joki Poki - for the lyrics scroll down to the bottom of the page: http://www.sparkenthusiasm.com/teacher_treasures.html

¡Qué divertido!

Harrison loves these songs. He gets really excited when I get to his toes! It's a fun way to get in a little Spanish after changing his diaper :)
